About 77,962 National Service Personnel have been deployed across the country in all sectors for the 2019/2020 service year.
Out of the number, 66,348, representing 85.1 per cent of the total postings have been deployed to the public sector while the private sector received 11,614 personnel representing 14.9 per cent of the total figure. Consequently, a total of 6,000 were deployed to support the Agricultural sector including the Planting for Food and Jobs (PFJ) Policy.

This was disclosed at a press briefing to announce the postings in Accra on Monday by the Executive Director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Mustapha Ussif.
Mustapha Ussif said, personnel were also posted to support programs like government’s planting for food and jobs policy among other regional postings.

He mentioned that the period was provided to ensure service personnel had sufficient time to go through the registration processes before formally beginning their service on September 2.

Mustapha Ussif assured service personnel of the prompt payment of allowances, ensuring value for money in turn for the secretariat.

Started in 1973, the National Service programme is a compulsory one-year service required of all citizens of Ghana who are 18 years and above, at the time of deployment to, among other objectives, encourage the spirit of national service among all segments of Ghanaian society.

Under the scheme a person who has not commenced and completed his period of national service would not obtain employment outside the scheme or be employed by any other person outside the Scheme.
